sense of what he's talking about among the other quadrants it's what ronald reagan won in '84 during the most decisive landslide in the modern times. so, that is i will end with two quick points one for each party. there's the message for democrats here as well the general trend is a loving them to win a majority with a smaller number of whites, they are also winning the smaller majority of the whites, and the reality is reviewing the last four times they've identified the control of the government 65, 66 from 76 to 80, 93, 94 and the first two years of obama each time they suffered a fairly catastrophic decline in the vote share which says they've not been able to articulate the need broad support in the community especially the working class community the the other part, the republicans will certainly be a big point of the debate. it's entirely possible that romney will run as any republican challenger ever. pulling on the whites bush '88 come all 56 to 61% of whites range. romani could come right in that range and lose, and i think that is down to -- it should precipitate a conver

other. you don't have to agree. that's okay. and senator mccain mentioned earlier with ronald reagan and tip o neill, they probably didn't agree on much of anything, yet they were able to have an affable relationship and be decent to one another and not tear each other down in the process. we have to get back to that and keep talking about this. that's why again, governor schwarzenegger, i want to thank you for getting this started. if we don't do it won't happen. >> secretary can you talk about the reaction. i come out of the goodness of my heart, recently sent to the senate press secretary in the two senators of pennsylvania, senator to me and senator casey of the two men themselves and their staffs at a softball game. they had a good time, they had a few beers, they put it on their face but page on both of them told me they got absolute vituperative remarks from their supporters. how could you possibly can so that the enemy like that? the senator from the road state, unit think that they would be a certain common interest here, but that was the reaction of the voters. they'll come you

years of growth less than half the historical average by contrast, in 1984 under ronald reagan gdp growth was 7.2%. these are abstract numbers. what does it mean when the economy is growing, when small businesses are prospering, they are creating new jobs, people are able to find work. it creates opportunities for everyone. what we have, unfortunately, is small business after small business is facing crushing, uncertainty. i'll take the single biggest question you hear from business leaders is they don't know between obamnicare and dodd-frank, between the offshore drilling moratorium in texas. all of these policies are killing jobs, and what entrepreneurs expressed to me all over the state is the sense of great uncertainty of what are the federal rate it is going to do. the president keeps promising to raise everyone's taxes which is causing small businesses to keep capital on the sidelines and not deployed because they have so much uncertainty. >> i'm not sure the president promises to raise everyone's taxes. do you know what the gdp growth was in last year of the bush administrat

marginal rate in the united states, when ronald reagan took office, the marginal office with 71% to 72%. it is interesting to me that the greatness that people speak of in terms of the united states, when we talk about the 1940's, the 1950's, the 1960's, 1970's, the marginal rate that folks paid was much greater. nobody says we will go back to that. at the same time, during the clinton years, we had marginal rates that were a little bit higher than they are now and we had some of the best economic times that the country has ever seen. that is what i'm talking about. my concern for the country is that all of this heat has been generated around this issue instead of light and analysis and a sober look at the role that every american play, should play in strengthening our country. that is the concern i have in the long run. >> i want to pick up mr. cruz's suggestion that the economy is in trouble from -- is in trouble. texas has endured. but san antonio has had a tough couple of years. the census bureau report brought these numbers appeared between 2009 and 2011, unemployment in san anton

peace through strength which he borrows from ronald reagan. during the reagan administration, our embassy and marine barracks were bombs in beirut. and the last time these folks were in charge -- and believe me, it would be the same folks running the foreign policy establishment if you elected mitt romney -- these folks led us into the most disastrous foreign policy decision in a generation which was the invasion of iraq. it empowered iran, it created a trillion dollars of debt charged on the national credit card, it killed more than 4,000 americans, it wounded more than 30,000, it left hundreds of thousands of iraqis dead or displaced. and yet these folks want us to hand the keys of foreign policy back to them? it's, it's -- i mean, the nerve of the individuals who drug us into the worst foreign policy disaster in the middle east in a generation, to say that they somehow understand this region better is, it's laughable, frkly. >> well, you mentioned syria. how -- there's a lot of pressure for the administration to get more involved in syria. how do you think the administration is

. ronald reagan could work with tip o'neill. bill clinton could work with newt gingrich. we have to get back to that context when it is not about political party but taking care of people and moving forward. leadership is not about blame. it is the house's fall for the president's fault. leadership is about rolling up your sleeves and locking yourself in a room and leading by example. congress has not been able to come of with a budget in 2,000 days. that is ridiculous. let's come up with a budget. there is legislation that is bipartisan. no budget no pay legislation says if congress doesn't do its job and have a responsible budget they don't get paid. that is a step in the right direction. my pledge is i will co-sponsor that legislation which is bipartisan and holds congress accountable for doing with their job which is passing a budget and they haven't done it in 2,000 days. has the no budget no pay legislation. >> the question is about compromise. give us another ec would be willing to compromise on. bera: there are many of us who thing no child left behind is going in the wrong

to change that thee i don'- theocracy. when ronald reagan called the soviet union the evil empire, that gave heart to the prisoners. if iran gets nuclear weapons, that needs to be prevented. you have worries about particularly in syria, a chemical weapon stockpiles, you have the tax on embassies and consulates in libya and egypt and elsewhere around the world. it's why it's so dangerous and wrong to be playing these political games with our armed services. we need to be strong, a strong economy to have a strong national defense, but the last thing we ought to be doing is having devra devastating cuts te military readiness, and that's why what has to happen is responsible leadership, stop the devastating cuts k come together, have cuts that set the right priorities and ensure the men and women protecting our safety and our freedom and our elections here have the best armorment, the best equipment, and make sure we also keep those good paying jobs and technology and defense here in virginia, not use them as a pawn to raise taxes op job creating businesses. >> governor kaine, one min
